Queens borough president urges Port Authority to act in keeping JetBlue in Long Island City


In the ongoing efforts to keep the JetBlue corporate headquarters grounded in Long Island City, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards recently met with the airline’s executives and followed that with a letter to the Port Authority.

During that meeting, Richards learned a lease extension at JFK International Airport would discourage JetBlue from abandoning its plans to move its base of operations to Florida when its current lease in Queensboro Plaza expires in 2023.
